As technology advances, so must the laws that protect the public from the accompanying dangers. The latest devices to come into the safety crosshairs are wearable technologies like smartwatches.
There are concerns that, just like smartphones, smartwatches contribute to the problem of distracted driving. They both are and are not "hands-free" devices. While it's true they are not handheld in the traditional sense of the word, by being worn on the wrist just below the hand, their omnipresence assures distraction is just a vibration, beep or light-up alert away from the driver.
